Spring Show 2020 Launching Online May 9
DIGITAL EXHIBIT LAUNCHING ONLINE SATURDAY MAY 9th!
We're celebrating online together the artworks created by the tenacious young artists of the Siena Art Institute and Siena School for Liberal Arts during the very unusual circumstances of the Spring 2020 semester. Despite the limitations of having to work from home amidst the Covid-19 pandemic, our students have been tenaciously and creatively continuing with their artistic projects, including work from our courses in ceramics, photography, silversmithing, music, and the interdisciplinary Art & Society course.
This DIGITAL EXHIBITION launced with a live broadcast on Facebook between two continents! Students’ artworks are displayed through the platform of our blog (www.sienaart.blog) as well as linking to our social media. Our students were our “correspondents” for a live broadcast through the Facebook page of the Siena Art Institute (www.facebook.com/sienaart ), allowing our young artists to speak about their work and answer questions from the public.
The participants in our Spring 2020 semester come from a variety of institutions (the Athens School of Art and the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (Greece), Amherst College and Mount Holyoke College and the College of the Holy Cross in Massachusetts (USA), and Oberlin College in Ohio (USA). Our Greek students were selected to participate in the Siena Art Institute’s Spring 2020 semester program thanks to a special scholarship offered in collaboration with the Stavros Niarchos Foundation.
